Technician (Current Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – December 16, 2016
Company has gone through a huge layoff. 13% to be exact. the layoff was completely needed. We were part of a consolidation effort in the last year so there was some overlap of my department. My Current position isn't hard. the most enjoyable part of the workday is that I am appreciated verbally by the processes and customers I support. Problem is that the company is also on a "run the business without money" kick. Wage increases are nearly non-existent unless you are unique to some process that cannot survive without you. (not me) Promotions are frozen too. Hiring is halted. No Raises even for cost of living says I do not need to be better just good enough not to get fired. If I get fired they won't replace me because my manager cannot get approval to replace me. They let go a lot of my peers already so they will likely not replace me either if I leave. When there are no raises, the people at the top still get giant bonuses for cutting costs. You have to love that! Classic "greed is good" mentality. Big wigs like to fly all over the country racking up costs, when they could just teleconference. Now I know why I do not get raises. Goes to flying them around. Teleconference equipment collects dust in the conference room. At least there is an increase in something around here.

There are mid management people that tried to make it work, the overall demand of performance was unrealistic. People left and with less the expectation was to do more, which is illogical. Overall, logic is missing.
